Interior Design magazine says thatThe ABC's of the Bauhaus is, "a collection of visually and intellectually stimulating essays about basic design courses at the Bauhaus, Froebel toys, inflation in the Weimar Republic, the typography of Herbert Bayer, Psychoanalysis, and fractal geometry. A fascinating fantasia on an elementary theme."

And Elysabeth Yates Burns McKee, fromDesign Book Review says that "perhaps the most successful aspect ofThe ABC's is its ability to elucidate complexand fundamentaltheroetical aspects of the Bauhaus program."
